In chapter 8. Advanced concepts on page 408:

In section 8.3.1, the $MIRROR variable set in the example is incomplete: it lacks the path to the /debian directory. The assignment should read:

# MIRROR=http://ftp.debian.org/debian

Regardless, you should still use apt-spy to determine a closer mirror!

Feedback

Jagadeesh K. Venugopal: I liked this book because, finally, an author has had the presence of mind to write a book that did not regurgitate Unix commands like 'ls' and 'vi' for the gazillionth time. [...] In summary, raise the quality of your Linux reading a few notches by purchasing this book, and raise the quality of your personal computer usage by installing debian or its derivatives.
